Product Description

Inspired by the author's experiences, The Story of Bodri by Hedi Fried is a thoughtful introduction to the Holocaust for young readers. Strikingly honest prose and illustrations share an unforgettable story about a faithful dog, a family in danger, and the power of hope in unimaginable circumstances. Hedi spends her days playing with her dog Bodri in the park, but her quiet world starts to crumble the day she hears Adolf Hitler on the radio. Germany's leader hates her and her family, just because they are Jewish. And Hitler doesn't even know them----it doesn't make any sense. Soon Nazi Germany invades Hedi's country, and her life changes forever. Recommended for ages 6 to 10 years.
